The resulting collision of seminal dance music and orchestral instrumentation, together with vocals from the AMC Choir and special guests, has breathed new life into club classics such as "You Got The Love", "Blue Monday", "Voodoo Ray", "Ride On Time" & more... Exec. produced by Haçienda, Joy Division & New Order co-founder, Peter Hook.

    "Instruments" is a 7 track acoustic project by internationally celebrated producer / performer / composer Henrik Schwarz. These arrangements are created by Johannes Brecht as a fully acoustic listening experience of Schwarz’s chart topping melodic compositions . On this album his compositions are transcribed for a contemporary classical music ensemble, including his first single to receive worldwide attention, "Marvin" (2002). Both performed and recorded strictly acoustic, without the backbone of any electronic instruments, the pureness and elegance of wood brass, strings and percussions are transporting the repetitive grooves and hymnal anthems into renowned concert halls. Over the last two years Schwarz developed this innovative approach to transfer his personal aesthetics of modern techno productions into acoustic chamber music arrangements.

    Philip Glass

    Einstein On The Beach

    The impact that the Philip Glass opera, "Einstein On The Beach" had on its 1976 premier galvanised contemporary classical music and raised public awareness of minimalist music. Scored for electric organs, singers who performed as dancers, soloists who spoke as well as sang, solo violin and chorus and string and woodwind ensembles it was a very ambitious work. Full of poetic metaphors and narrative devices to illustrate the trials and obstacles Albert Einstein overcame to illustrate his theory of relativity, this is one of the most important works of the 20th Century. Now reissued as part of Sony Classical new 'Glass' edition.

    Philip Glass

    Glassworks

      Philip Glass is one of the founding fathers of minimalism and "Glassworks" is one of his best and most accessible single disc releases. His fusion of Western musical idioms with ethnic scales and world music rhythms were among the earliest and most successful of their kind. This new 'Glass' edition from Sony Classical of "Glassworks" highlights the quality of work on display here. The six compositions are amongst the most lyrical and tuneful of his career, full of memorable melodies, shorter passages of bobbing, excited rhythms and serene elegiac orchestrations such as the brilliant "Islands" and the final piece "Closing".

      Philip Glass

      Naqoyqatsi

      American Philip Glass composes highly accessible melodic orchestral pieces, chamber works, operas or (as is the case here) film scores. In his twenties he studied with some of the great contemporary composers of the day including Darius Milhaud but he preferred more radical composers such as Harry Partch, Moondog, Henry Cowell and Virgil Thomson. He was still searching for his own style when, during his studies in Paris, (under Nadia Boulanger) he was hired by a film-maker to transcribe the Indian music of Ravi Shankar into notation readable to French musicians. In the process he discovered the techniques of Indian music. After researching music in North Africa, India and the Himalayas, he returned to New York and began to apply Eastern techniques to his own work and this element suffuses his compositions to this day, written in the style now known as minimalism. He has been closely associated with the trilogy of films illustrating the human condition "Koyaanisqatsi", "Powaqqatsi" and now finally "Naqoyqatsi". The music in each is linked thematically and is as important as the visual aspects of the films. "Naqoyqatsi" is subtitled "Life As War" and there are bleak cello solos from Yo-Yo Ma that add an even more profound element to this work which completes some of the most satisying music in the Glass canon.
